Letter: Common Core Standards Are Solid
*Editor’s Note: City-Times staff has not vetted the information released in the enclosed video link.
To the Editor-
As a retired educator in the public schools, I am saddened and amazed that the Common Core Standards are under attack by our governor and some members of the legislature.
The aim is to replace them and I ask why? If scores are looked at in your own school district you will find your schools are NOT failing and the Common Core Standards were developed by educators who have a background in educational principles and strategies.
Please feel free to contact your legislators to bring a sane approach back to what is best for our students in our public schools.
Here is a video released today by Tony Evers which may clarify the issues for you.
